Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Friday, January 27, 2021

If you’re going to hold onto a smart-ass remark in search of an appropriate prompt, you’d better make sure it’s a real good one:

I thought, at the moment, I might have a shot at a dream I’ve had for ten years now: having a guy say to me, “I don’t like the way you’re looking at my girlfriend.” To which I would reply, “Hey, don’t you flatter yourself. I don’t think that much of your girlfriend.” Like a spring, it is coiled and ready to be unleashed smoothly and with a grin, whenever the opportunity arises.

Tim: I’m thinking there’s scant chance of unleashing that witty rejoinder in Ybor. If you really want to have that spring sprung, take a road trip to Miami. Guaranteed some South Beach guido and his hoochie-mama will oblige you (including the Part II about getting jacked up afterward).

  1. (including the Part II about getting jacked up afterward)

    Yes except down there it doesn’t go “the big ole guy socks me in the nose.” It goes more like “the big ole guy shoots me in the face.”

  2. Plenty of ways to get shot in Ybor too…

  3. Reminds me of the “jerk store” comeback that George Costanza on Seinfeld obsessed over. He flew from NYC to Ohio to zing someone with that one! Are you ready for that level of dedication??
    Congratulations on the move!

  4. Remember it? For a while, I had the sound clip of George saying, “Well the jerkstore called, and they’re running out of you” as my work email sound notification…
